First Time Accessing UCPath 

UCPath is a brand-new, systemwide payroll and personnel system, and you’ll have some set-up tasks to complete the first time you log in.

To access UCPath make sure you use the correct account:

  • If you were previously a student employee login with your AD or Business System Account
  • If you are a new student employee login with your Employee AD Account.
    Questions about your Employee AD Account? Ask your supervisor.


Once you get through Duo and into UCPath, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Update your personal profile(click to see preview)
    It’s voluntary, allowing you to self-identify as to veteran and disability status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation. You can “decline to state” for any question, though this information provides important data about UC employee diversity and informs UC’s efforts to create an inclusive environment.


With that out of the way, you are now able to use the new UCPath Online Self-Service Portal and here are some suggested things-to-do:



For biweekly employees:

      • Access your LASR and note your vacation and sick leave balances.
      • Access UCPath online self-service portal and check your leave balances. These balances should match the LASR.
For monthly employees:
      • Access your LASR and note your vacation and sick leave balances.
      • Access UCPath online self-service portal and view your June 1 Pay Statement (for May earnings)
      • Update your noted LASR balances by adding any May accruals and subtracting any May takes
      • View your leave balances in UCPath online self-service portal. These balances should match your updated LASR balances.


  • Sign up for Direct Deposit (click to see preview)
    If already signed up, verify the information transferred correctly and update if needed. New in UCPath, you can designate direct deposits to up to three financial institutions (instead of just one).


NEW Employee ID

All current employees were assigned a new UCPath Employee ID during the conversion to UCPath. This number is viewable when logged in to UCPath Online, in the top left-hand corner of the screen. It is also printed on the earnings statement.

Existing UC San Diego Health employees using the clock in/out feature of EcoTime will continue to use their PPS Employee ID. New employees will utilize their UCPath Employee ID. At some point ALL employees will be transitioned to clocking in/out with their UCPath Employee ID. This timeline has not yet been determined by Health Timekeeping and IS.


First paydays in UCPath

Earnings statements will generally be available in UCPath the day before payday. For our first payday in UCPath (June 1 for MO and June 10 for BW paid employees), you will be able to view your UCPath MO earnings statements beginning at 8 am on June 1, BW viewable on June 9.

Compare the UCPath earnings statement with your last earnings statement prior to UCPath. Find your last earnings statement at: At Your Service Online (AYSO).

Statements in UCPath will have a new look and new employee IDs. Here is a sample of the new earnings statement format: Your UCPath Paycheck.

Don't have direct deposit? Wondering why your paycheck is not available on campus? All paper paychecks are now mailed to the home address you have in your personal profile on UCPath online. Checks are mailed, the day before payday, from a processing center in Arizona, meaning you could be waiting up to 5 days for your check to arrive. Avoid the delay by logging in to UCPath online and signing up for direct deposit today.

If you live on campus and decide to receive a paper paycheck make sure to follow the official UC San Diego home address format for students when updating your address.

Another option: The new UC Pay Card

The new UC Pay Card is a debit card that you can get without establishing a bank account, it does require a Social Security number. The UCPath Center will load your earnings onto your card every payday (with funds available that day) and you can use your card anywhere Visa cards are accepted. The ADP payroll services company will issue personalized UC Pay Cards at no charge to the employee. And, there will be no fees to use the cards at in-network locations.

The earliest you can sign up for a pay card is Monday, June 1. Find instructions, the application form, and a link to FAQs here pdf link. Your card will not be available for the June 1 or June 10 payday.
